By using a series of stations or centers, students discover how a jet engine takes in air, compresses it, and burns fuel to make air expand. They learn how the air is then forced out the tailpipe to create thrust. An optional teacher demonstration combines all these components into a single tennis-ball-container engine. In part two of the lesson, students build a static, or non-moving, model of a jet engine. At the end of the lesson, students use technical writing skills to explain how a jet engine works. Two student sheets are included. Lessons found on page 32 of Exploring the Extreme Educator Guide.

Students will be introduced to the design process, engineering, and technology. Students will learn that the design process is not a simple linear progression from one step to the next resulting in a finished product. Although there are steps, the design process is an iterative one: designing, modifying, testing, and redesigning until a finished product is made. A central tenet of engineering, however, is that there is no such thing as a “perfect design.”
